my daughter 31, mother of 3, toronto based has a negative ANA and postive DSDNA......her Rehumatologist diagnosed her as SLE patient.
 
I just want to know "isn't a positive ANA one of the indications for SLE"?
 
thanks

Some people can have negative ANA and still have lupus.

Different labs have different standards of measuring. To some labs 1:40 is negative, to others it's positive. This blows my mind to be honest. There should be a universal measurement. I don't begin to understand the logic there.

Thanks for the prompt responses.

Does homeopathy or hikmat offer some good treatment of lupus?
